Visual & Performing Arts

Studies have shown that instruction in the arts and humanities boosts academic success and helps produce well-rounded students.

That's why South San Francisco Unified School District (SSFUSD) is proud to offer an extensive variety of courses in art, dance, music, theatre, and voice taught by supportive teachers experienced in helping students cultivate a sense of artistry through the refinement of technique.

It's often thought that to excel in the arts one must be born with natural talent.

While natural talent is helpful, individuals may also develop their artistic talents by learning and applying proper technique through patience, practice, and repetition.

Because focus, concentration, and discipline form the foundation of excellence in any craft, individuals who have the persistence to learn new concepts and ideas and implement what they have learned using techniques honed by hard work and dedication are likely to be successful in many areas within the classroom and beyond.
